The hotel is really far away from the beach, it's about 15-20 walk uphill from the beach, I recommend to use their shuttle as much as you can. The pool is really dirty and the fitness room barely have anything in it, the sheet is dirty when we got here. This is not a very good hotel, it's just a... More

This place will not be near the top of your list if you have done even a little due diligence. The pool was OK. The jacuzzi hand posts are no longer anchored. Our room on 2nd floor was grubby, especially the carpet. Glad we won this by attending a time share talk in San Diego County some time back and... More

This place is just filthy. There was mold growing on our curtains and in the bath tub. The carpet was grey/black in high traffic areas indicating that it has NEVER been cleaned. Honestly, is getting a steam cleaner that difficult? The upholstery on our furniture was stained with God knows what. Our room had clearly not been vacuumed before we... More

The Island was great, but this hotel has a staff that really needs a vacation. Took over quite a while to check in, the staff was very grumpy. Told out room would not be ready until 4:00 (this is on a Thursday) and did not have an area to put our valuables such as laptops. They were very condescending and... More

Stayed September 12 through the 14. Ice machine was broken on all floors we had to go to the restaurant for ice. Counter staff is not very friendly but the resort shuttle guys make up for that. Our room was one of the renovated rooms so no complaints on that. I would stay again!

It's walking distance to the beach. The rooms look nothing like the pictures. The carpet was pretty dirty and so was the bath tub. We had to use a towel to cover the window as pieces of blinds were missing. The good thing is that we didn't spend much time in the room.

My wife and I and another couple traveled to Catalina in post-tourist rush midweek, mid-September and had a great time, enjoying perfect weather...despite our disappointment with the Catalina Canyon Resort & Hotel. There were many problems with the hotel. I will list them: 1. Check-in was slow and very awkward. Poor communication between the front desk and the maintenance staff... More

Stayed on 4 Sept, just for one night luckily. Shuttle was good and the reception staff were friendly, people in the cafe were not. Hotel is in dire need of renovation. Rooms are terrible, dull, carpet buckled, paint off the doors, broken blinds, can't close the patio door as it won't reopen. They are renovating the reception, which I guess... More

I was skeptical when my husband booked this hotel for the week given the negative reviews due to the renovation which resulted in the lack of service and dirty rooms. As the dates gotten closer, I checked often and seen updated positive reviews which put in at ease. Everything went smoothly, the staff was friendly and our room is decent.... More
